Stress-Relieving Home Decor Ideas on a Budget

Kim Danger, nationally-recognized savings expert and founder of, has teamed up with Uniroyal Tire to release a series of e-books for the frugal-minded. The team’s e-books and videos can be found here, and they are available for free.

My latest e-book, Pamper Yourself for Less, is all about making yourself a priority and creating some “me time.” The best place to start pampering yourself is in the home, so I have some tips to make your home more relaxing.

Remove the Extras

When you de-clutter your home, you’re not only getting rid of unwanted belongings, you’re removing “dead weight” from your life.

This can surely be an overwhelming process, so I recommend starting the habit to clean for 15 minutes a few times a week. Once it becomes part of your routine, it’s going to be much easier to keep things tidy. After all, we bring things into our home on a regular basis, so it’s only natural that we remove what we don’t use.

Make sure to keep a box somewhere in a central location for unwanted items that you don’t want to throw away: you can donate them to Goodwill, or you could sell them on either eBay or Craigslist if they are still in good condition.
